Hey Jason, here’s a second vote for chrisstefs shiplap joinery suggestion. Not quite as easy to glue up as T&G, but a heck of alot easier to get done – you can even do it before you cut your boards to length if you have a long enough guide bar (ie straight 2×4) lying around.

Just need a straightedge to clamp down and whatever plane you have around that cuts its full with – Stanley 10, rabbet/shoulder plane, etc. Add some Titebond III, the wall will come apart before the Till does.
